  1. OPT FOR CLEAN OIL.

    Dirty oil is hard on your engine and the environment. Follow the maintenance schedule recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer and you will stretch your fuel mileage by 12%, reducing emissions and fill-ups.

  2. REPLACE YOUR SPARK PLUGS.

    Old spark plugs that make pinging sounds could mean that fuel isn’t burning completely inside the cylinder, this reduces fuel efficiency by 30%.

  3. WATCH YOUR TIRE PRESSURE.

    Always check your tire pressure weekly to prevent uneven wear on your wheels which can cause increased fiction and fuel consumption. Just one under-inflated tire can increase fuel usage by 4%.

  4. KEEP YOUR COOL.

    Aggressive driving, including speeding, hard starts/stops can increase fuel consumption by 33%. Tailgating in traffic jams is the biggest cause of those inefficient stops and starts.

  5. SHARE A RIDE.

    Whether its morning or evening, getting/giving a lift is a great way to cut your weekly fuel consumption. Sharing a ride just twice a week can really add up.
